Just Trains is proud to bring you an authentic reproduction of the West Somerset Railway for you to drive on your PC.

The West Somerset Railway, the epitome of a preserved country branch line railway harking back to bygone days, is the longest 'heritage' line in England, with trains running 20 miles between Bishops Lydeard station (four miles from Taunton) and Minehead, via the Quantock Hills and along the Bristol Channel coast. The line is still connected to the national rail network on the Great Western Line at the southern end.

This Fantastic West Somerset Railway add-on for Train Simulator in fact represents the line some time in 2015, following the introduction of a new siding at Norton Fitzwarren and also the southern extension of the passing loop at Williton Station. The line is almost entirely accurately signalled, and has been accurately modelled with numerous custom objects, buildings and signals to show the splendour of the West Somerset Railway in digital form.

The route includes 14 Standard Scenarios - please note that additional stock (not supplied) is required to enable all the scenarios to be operated.

Important! Please note that The Fantastic West Somerset Railway is compatible with Train Simulator 2015. If you purchased Train Simulator after 20th September 2012 then you will require the European Loco & Asset Pack (available to purchase via Steam) for the route to display correctly.

The West Somerset Railway logo and name are used with the kind permission of the West Somerset Railway PLC.
